CrossFit Beaufort coach wins weightlifting event

Teddy Binette, co-owner and head coach of CrossFit Beaufort competed in the 2014 Master’s National Weightlifting Championships held in Shreveport, Louisiana, on April 5-6. Master’s weightlifting is for athletes ages 35 and up and athletes are divided by weight class and age group.

Each athlete has three attempts at the Snatch and three attempts at the Clean & Jerk, with the heaviest successful attempt of each lift being added together to give the athlete a total. Teddy’s total not only earned him the titled National Champion, but also qualified him for the Master’s Pan-American Weightlifting Championships this June in Toronto, Canada, and the Master’s World Weightlifting Championships this September in Copenhagen, Denmark.

CrossFit is a core strengthening and conditioning program that is customized for each individual based upon their current fitness level and every class is instructed by a certified CrossFit coach.

CenturyLink celebrates Safe Digging Month

April is National Safe Digging Month, and CenturyLink, Inc. reminds Beaufort residents to always call 811 before beginning any digging project.

When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to the local one-call center, which notifies CenturyLink and utility companies of their intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, paint or both.

Striking a single line can cause injury, repair costs, fines and outages. Installing a mailbox, building a deck and planting a garden are all examples of digging projects that should only begin after calling 811.
